The SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column is a place at Shannon Muir’s author website open to interviews and guest posts from other authors. One thing Shannon firmly believes in for readers not only to learn about new books available, but about those who craft the tales behind them. As its name implies, SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column features writers from all genres of fiction who want their potential audience to get to know them, and their works, better – and occasionally may offer features from Shannon herself that support readers to discover words. OWN YOUR OWN TALE from SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS is a monthly feature hoping to encourage readers who work toward being authors. 

In this month’s edition of OWN YOUR OWN TALE from SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS, Shannon Muir talks about how she started a year trying to plan, how nothing is going according to it, and her thoughts on what she needs to adjust to move forward.

This will be the last column this year. Please look for the column the second Tuesday of each month in 2020.


It figures that this would be the year I would decide to “own my own tale” more than ever before, to try and plan a map of goals for the year.

I believe there have been more things thrown in my path as obstacles to achieving goals. When I say that I’m not meaning small temptations here and there, or near misses. In my case this year, there have been several instances that have put entire plans so far off track I have had to either give up entirely or massively reschedule.

One thing that’s come out of this is that I really wanted to build a schedule for publishing on Wattpad, as well as reliably working toward meeting deadlines for items set on Smashwords pre-order. Be advised those items showing on pre-order now may still adjust, but I need to stop even shooting for any sort of pre-order announcements until I can really get a system on track.

Those who have borne with me over the years with this, I thank you greatly for your patience. Going forward, though, I’d much rather announce something as immediately available instead of upcoming and continue to break promises.

Right now, I am completely having to rethink my goals and direction, and how I want to craft my own tale in the wake of these most recent changes.

With this in mind, the column will be going on hiatus until January 2020. Please look for it the second Tuesday of each month.
